Can't help you with your stick. Not my area of expertise. You should be able to flash the kernel and see if it recognizes it like it should though.

you sad http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...&postcount=471 where is kernel source?

On the right side, above the main Dev section, you will see a "SEARCH THIS FORUM".

Type "kernel"

You will get this;

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ghlight=kernel

If you look, in several places he has a link to his git. Any specific questions about his kernels, and info you are looking for, should best be directed to him. He's pretty good about helping.

Is there anything in this ROM that would make the tablet cut itself off? I am constantly having to turn my tablet back on after I leave it idle for a while... and when I cut it back on the battery isn't dead so its not that. I looked for power settings or some kinda app that might be acting as a power saver and cutting off my tablet, but I can't find any.

Nothing has ever been said about it, and I never had this issue before.

2 Questions,

1. have you in the past been messing around with any of the ICS Roms?

2. Have you in the past ran any other HC Roms, specifically Taboonay or Thor Rom?

3. Have you been installing different kernels or playing with voltages?

Because what you describe, is what we call SOD (sleep of death), and no HC based Rom has ever had that issue (except for ones running a certain kernels).

Here's the deal with HC SOD. This can happen on a 501 IF you have been running a kernel that's different than the one I include with the Rom, which is version 3.4+.

If you ran a different rom or kernel before, it is likely that certain kernel files did not get cleaned out properly before install Alex III.

OC kernels on a 501 are well known for SOD and 3g display freeze.These are kernels by TegraOwners, and Rtripps ver 3.5, 3.6, 3.7. Mostly because the undervoltage is too low to maintain the 501 system.

The ver 3.4+ does not have this issue. Not at the default voltages. If you have adjusted them, then it is possible. Also, if the system didn't get cleaned properly from some other kernel, then it is possible like I said, that certain old kernel files didn't get cleaned.

I have run three ROMs

1. {ROM 3.2.1}{The Collective}Epiphany - 1.11.12
2. Moscows Alexandra III Rev. 1.1
3. Alex_IV_3d_HC_Kernel
4. Now back to Moscow Alex III

I played with the voltage a a little... never installed different Kernals that i know of unless it was included in the ROM. from what your saying I'm guessing i should factory reset, clear all caches, etc. and reinstall ?

The SOD is more agravating than anythig else... I never noticed it until after i switched from from Moscow III to Alex IV then back to Moscow III.

Aha!

There-in lies the issue.

To run Alex IV, correctly, you have to be on an ICS Bootloader. I'm not sure if you changed bootloaders or not. You can get AcerRecovery from the market, and see what version bootloader you are on. Just run it, and it will say.

If it says 3.0.1 or 3.0.12 I believe it is HC bootloader.

Anything else, it's probably ICS bootloader. It won't work with an HC based rom.

This will cause issues. So I need to know which version bootloader you currently have.

If you have an HC bootloader, then then I would suggest a very good wipe and format. This will get rid of anything.Then the rom will be reset back to the defaults voltages.

Note that HC and ICS kernels are 2 completely different kernels. Anything left over from the previous, will effect things.

Pro Tip. When messing with voltages, NEVER select the "apply at boot" for your change, until you make sure it is stable. This includes sleep mode. And only +/- in .25 mv steps.

If you need more help, let me know.

OK. You have an hc boot loader so you're good to go with Alex III. This time, leave them voltages alone

The 501 is extremely sensitive to voltage. This is why we can't run really extreme Oc/uv kernels.
